  1. EverNote support said its a bug that may be fixed in the future: We apologize for the inconvenience, however it appears there is currently a bug causing this. We appreciate you taking the time to send us this error. We have filed an internal bug report with the QA team lead. She will classify and fix the bugs in the order determined by the project Lead. Unfortunately this is not something I can fix for you at this time. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for making Evernote a better product,
  2. EverNote support suggested I reinstall EverNote. I tried twice, but it didn't work. I'll update after I try whatever they suggest next.
  3. Actually, it does work the way I think it should work. But only in Windows right now. I was peeved at your response about me not doing a good job. I was not peeved at the lack of ability to search for special characters. I was surprised.
  4. Its supposed to be the way I _f_think_f_ it should work. I've submitted a bug report.
  5. Thank you cwb, its nice to know that searching for special characters in EverNote works at least in the Windows version. I'll use your _f_ suggestion from now on when writing new notes. I'll submit a bug report and then hopefully some time in the future, I'll be able to use * in notes and search for them.
  6. Mac 5.5. Yes I'm searching for special characters within a note using command+F; I'm not doing evernote wide searches or searching for a particular note. Unfortunately, some notes I am editing already have special characters in them (because they were copied and pasted from somewhere else). Searching for underscore within a note doesn't work for me. It works if I use the evernote-wide search though, but thats not what I care about right now! Hmmmmm
  7. Yes I chose to implement a workflow that is not compatible with evernote. But, I also chose to implement a workflow that I thought SHOULD be compatible with evernote. I don't think its ridiculous of me to initially assume that evernote would allow finding special characters. Too bad for me, but I guess the upsides to this inability are worth it apparently (cause of false positives and large indexing or whatever). Ideally there would be some way to turn this ability on for a note so that it is at least possible. That would be my feature request (that probably won't be implemented). That would be better for cases where I am copying and pasting text that have special characters in them. For instance, how would I search for pointer initializations in C++ code that I've pasted in? Saying I should do a better job of due diligence for this ability that exists in every other app that deals with text is a bit like saying that I should check that a Mail app that I download can allow me to CC people. Or that a dictionary app will let me search for words that start with the letter f. Or that a messaging app can let me send special characters in messages. Its a common and basic ability whose exclusion would not be expected by most or all people. I don't think many people downloaded evernote thinking: "Oh I hope this app is not able to search for special characters!"
  8. Thanks for that link. I ranted in that thread, but to summarize: That sucks.
  9. In a note, I have "starred" certain parts of the text so that after I have written a lot, I can just type command+f and type "*" to find all the things that I have starred. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be able to find the stars! After some more testing, it doesn't seem to find any special characters at all (like %, $, @, etc...). How can I search for special characters within a note? Thanks
  10. I like the table of contents idea using the note links. But thats too bad rearranging is not supported.
  11. You are all very welcome I have never helped so many random people before. It feels overwhelmingly overwhelming. I don't think I can handle it much longer. This must be how batman feels. I haven't received the job offer from EverNote yet, but I assume it must be because they are currently putting together a ridiculously huge sign on bonus deal, in addition to an unjustifiably high salary that I cannot refuse. These things take time.
  12. WHAT? This worked for the note I tested it on, but then did not work for a new note that I created. WHAT IS GOING ON!
